I followed directions to the letter plus adding a bit of sugar as suggested in other reviews, but this did not taste good . Even my husband who eats almost anything could not eat it. It smelled good. It looked good, but it was very bitter.

This recipe has been in my files for a long time too but I know I got it from my mother-in-law. Anyway, it is a different twist on this vegetable and I agree it does need a bit of sugar. Also I prefer to omit the allspice and add some freshly grated ginger.
